Student Travel and Support

Welcome to the Student Travel & Support information for 2022/2023. Our aim is to provide a travel scheme that offers flexibility of choice, meets our students’ needs and does not put a barrier in the way of a student accessing their education. We work closely with both First Bus and Stagecoach bus companies to offer student-priced bus passes and to provide as many direct routes to HSDC as possible. We also work with South Western Railway to provide those students who wish to travel by train a reduced cost rail pass. Further financial help towards travel and essential college costs may be available if the household is in receipt of an income-based benefit. Please see the ‘Finance Support’ section for further information.

The tutors were really supportive and it was all thanks to them that I have achieved what I have. I’ve also made loads of great friends and really enjoyed my time at the college.

Lizaveta Sinkerich, A Level student

I’m very, very happy, I didn’t expect to do so well. The College has been helpful and supportive. I loved my courses, and the teachers were really good – every single one of them. The facilities are great, but it’s the staff that really make this place.

Matthew Randell, A Level student

The teaching and support was really great, the quality was really great, all the teachers really care about your education as well as your wellbeing, they take everything into consideration and they’re great.
